Onboarding Bizcuit with Direct Communication
To integrate with your bank, Payment Management uses Bizcuit: a leading PSD2-licensed service provider in the Netherlands. Payment Management integrates seamlessly with Bizcuit, so you can download your bank account statements and initiate payments directly from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
The direct communication services supported by Bizcuit depend on your bank. Navigate to your bank from the Bank Integration overview to see which services are supported.
This article covers the steps to set up direct communication between your bank and Payment Management using Bizcuit.
Before you can set up direct communication with Bizcuit, you must connect and verify your bank account.
To connect the bank account:
Go to Bizcuit, and on the main screen, navigate to Aanbevelingen (recommendations). If you recently created your Bizcuit account, you are prompted to connect the bank account.
To connect the account you used when creating your Bizcuit account, select Bankrekening koppelen (Connect the bank account). If you want to connect a different bank account, navigate to Instellingen (Settings) and select Bankrekening toevoegen (Add bank account). You can now add the permissions.
To make sure verify the registration is correct, you must confirm your IBAN number and the bank account name using the Deze tenaamstelling is correct (The naam on this bank account is correct) checkbox. Select Bevestigen (Confirm) to confirm.
If the bank account name is different from the name registered as the director at the Kamer van Koophandel (Chamber of Commerce), you will be prompted to verify your authority. On the Bevoegdheid (Authority) dialog, select the Ik bevestig dat ik gemachtigd ben om transacties in te zien in de naam van ... (I confirm that I am authorized to view transactions in name of xxx) checkbox and select Bevestig bevoegdheid (Confirm authority).
Confirming your authority requires you to have the required permissions in the bank environment. For example, for ABN AMRO and Rabobank you must be the owner or have these permissions assigned to you by the owner. For ING you must be the owner.
To use the services of Bizcuit, you must create an account at Bizcuit. The signup to Bizcuit is handled through the assisted Bank Account Setup guide in Payment Management.

When you have set up your bank accounts to use direct communication, you can continue the setup of Payment Management by following the recommended steps as specified in the Quick guide to setting up Payment Management.
The European revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) has been in force since 2019 and states that customers are in charge of their bank data and payment solutions. The new legislation provides the legal framework within which all payment service providers must operate.
Following the introduction of the new legislation, Bizcuit has developed an innovative solution that offers to proceed with all administrative and financial transactions within the Bizcuit app. Bizcuit has been granted a PSD2 license, allowing the app to operate with fully automatic links to all banks. For more information about how Bizcuit complies with the PSD2 regulations in the article, refer to this article: What is PSD2.
iDIN is a collaboration between all major Dutch banks, allowing customers to use their personal bank login to authenticate identification on various online websites and organizations, such as Bizcuit.
When customers are using their personal bank account to link a business account to Bizcuit, it'll only be used to confirm their identity. Bizcuit will not have access to any personal bank account data.
